It is just a mechanical composition of poem based on available facts ready in hand! I'm off to write a poem now on Growing Old. Langston Hughes was very much concerned about creating the African-American poetry as an independent genre in the world of literature. This atmosphere comes from the types of feelings that the tone evokes. Thank you for your wonderful knowledge and wording. No wonder you rise in the middle of the night to look up the date of a famous battle in a book on war.

Then back to the grand kids to tell tall tales, and read them poetry. I wish she could know how much I care about her. Cry, I tell you And the reflections found in your pool of tears - Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday To guide you through the fears of tomorrow. Here are ten of the very finest poems about ageing, from the age of Shakespeare to the current century.
